Belfor is the world leader in disaster recovery and property restoration. While my time at Belfor I handled mitigation and restoration projects ranging from the typical home restoration project to commercial claims with losses in the millions.
The Farrow Group:
The Farrow Group is a local pioneer in the Greater Cleveland Area established in 1945. While with The Farrow Group I estimated fire losses as well as most of the major carrier programs. State Farm PSP, Nationwide Blue Ribbon and Allstate Alacrity for example with full knowledge of the requirement for each program. I really learned the most from The Farrow Group when it came to the ins and outs of fire loss estimating. I really honed my skills by understanding the importance of being detailed oriented and thorough when presenting a fire estimate where so many items can be missed due to hidden damage.
Craftmaster Restoration was an education I cherish to this day. Learning the importance of customer service, keeping accurate and up to date notes and estimating all types of losses was the experience that assists me to this day.
